[October 18, 2016]  CB Deiondre Hall (ankle) missed his second straight game against Jacksonville because of injury. Hall would not have practiced Monday if one had been held.

CB Bryce Callahan (hamstring) made his fifth start despite suffering with the injury throughout the week and coming out of the Oct. 9 loss to Indianapolis because of it. Callahan's status for the Green Bay game is day to day. He would not have practiced Monday if practice had been held.

RB Jeremy Langford (ankle) missed his third straight game. Langford's injury has been labeled a high ankle sprain. He would not have practiced Monday if one had been held and is week to week.

LB Willie Young has moved to a tie for the NFC lead with six sacks. Young's effectiveness only figures to become greater when linebacker Pernell McPhee is activated from the physically-unable-to-perform list after recovering from offseason knee surgery. McPhee became eligible to be considered for activation Friday and Fox said Monday that there is a possibility he could return against Green Bay.

WR Eddie Royal (toe)left Sunday's game with Jacksonville and did not return. He was replaced as slot receiver by Josh Bellamy. Royal's status for Thursday is unknown and he is day to day. If there had been practice Monday, he would have sat out.

RB Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) would have practiced Monday on a limited basis due to the injury that kept him out of three games earlier. Carey went through Sunday's game without a problem.

LB Leonard Floyd (calf) missed his second straight game due to injury. Floyd had practiced during the week on a limited basis. The Bears' No. 1 draft choice in 2016 has been in four games, has half a sack and has been in on 13 tackles. Floyd would have practiced on a limited basis Monday if practice had been held, according to coach John Fox.


NT Eddie Goldman (ankle) missed his fourth straight game with the injury suffered against Philadelphia on Sept. 19. Goldman would not have practiced Monday if one had been held.

G Josh Sitton (ankle) went out of Sunday's game due to injury and went into the game already an injury concern due to a shoulder that cost him practice time each week since suffering it in the season's first game. Ted Larson replaced Sitton at left guard. Sitton wouldn't have practiced if it was held. He is day to day.

QB Jay Cutler (thumb) missed his fourth straight game and would not have practiced Monday if practice had been held. It's unlikely he'll play against the Packers Thursday. He is regarded as week to week.

CB Tracy Porter (knee) suffered an injury Sunday when he slipped and allowed a 51-yard game-winning TD pass. The team erroneously reported it as an ankle injury after the game. He is day to day for Thursday's game in Green Bay and if there had been practice Monday (Oct. 17) he would have sat out, according to coach John Fox.

LB Sam Acho (ribs) would have been limited in Monday's practice if one were held. He played Sunday and has been playing through the injury. He is likely to play Thursday.

TE Zach Miller (ribs) would have practiced on a limited basis if practice had been held. He has been playing through the injury and is likely to play Thursday.

LB Danny Trevathan came out of Sunday's game in some passing situations but only because of matchups. The defense went with some dime defenses that used three safeties to match up with pass-catching tight ends.
